Engineering without limits
We are the people who use tech to take you to new and undiscovered places. We are the people who challenge convention and use imagination, technology and tenacity to find better and more efficient solutions for our users.
At Skyscanner we’re transforming the travel industry. If youʼd like to join us on the journey to the future, here are a few things youʼll experience once on board.
The need for speed
We are an engineering team of agile, fast moving voyagers where A/B testing is the norm and bug fixes can be deployed in a matter of hours. We introduced Squads and Tribes to re-create the conditions of a fast moving, small and empowered start up, but for a company of hundreds. It optimises us for speed, impact and growth.
Our engineers are empowered to choose their own technologies. With each experiment there are endless possibilities to change our whole roadmap and monitor our whole progress on our missions. Some of our key successes of squadification building software at scale allow us to release up to 80 times per day.
Masters of Code
Through collaboration and the free exchange of ideas, we ensure that we are experts in a range of technologies, from Android and AWS to Spark and Swift – and everything in between.
Our philosophy is based on gathering and sharing knowledge. The ethos is supported by regular internal and external Tech Talks, talkbacks, hack days, innovation sessions, workshops, off sites and knowledge transfer. Rotations give our people a broad range of experiences which makes squad life stimulating and career progression transparent and instantly rewarding.
